Behind the Reflection
Easy and short
This game is good for beginners or for those who need a break from challenging games!
There is only one game mode. There are sparkles for the HOS.
Apart from the HOS, there are also objects to find in the locations. The mini-games are very easy.
The hint system is good.
There are not too many dialogs.
I needed a bit more than 1 1/2 hours to finish.
All in all, a very easy game, also good for the younger players.

Change of Pace
This isnt your typical hidden object game. You need to think a little differently to get through it but I loved the storyline and it was a relaxing change from all the others out there. Some of the mini games were tough but overall not that bad. It was a refreshing game to play and there isnt too much traveling back and forth between scenes. I really enjoyed and would recommend it players of all levels.

A Nice Enjoyable Game ...
I Had Played The Second Game Some Time Ago, So Stepping Backwards To The Origins Was Different ...
An Enjoyable Easy-Going Game ... And An OK Way To Use Up Vouchers And Pass A Bit Of Free Time ...

Trapped In The Mirror!
You are enjoying a beautiful day with your son until he is trapped in a magical mirror by an evil witch! This game is a lot different than most hidden object games, it still has the usual hidden object list finds (most scenes are doubled up) but there are several items that when you click on them, several circles pop up with the related items needed to complete that task. Once you find an item you click and drag that item onto the correct circle and once all those items are found you will receive a piece of map or an ingredient to a potion or whatever the task might be for that scene. There are arrows that indicate direction to another room or area and you start that same process over. There are lot's of mini games as well such as putting pieces of a bird feeder together, balancing scales with pieces of coal, or matching zodiac symbols to zodiac pictures. Good HOG, enjoy!

Overall good game
Cartoon drawings, no VOs, good HOS and puzzles, this game is definately geared to the beginner or as a casual filler game in between longer more in depth games. Either way it was fun to play and look forward to checking out the sequel to this game!

Varied Game Play Makes Simple Game Interesting
Story: Your son is kidnapped and held captive in a parallel world inside a mirror. You must enter the mirror and the warped alternate reality behind it, to overcome a conniving witch and get him back home.
Release Date: Feb 2011
The graphics are a bit dated, although clear, and the HOs have no animation or interaction, and the music is absolutely maddening, but this is an enjoyable little game, because the different search methods used make it so.
Confronted with a new task, you must find tools and parts you?ll need. These appear in a ring of pictured items. Some of the items you need will be right there in the location, but some could be hidden in a trunk, or a book. Also at least one item will likely be in a HOs, or you might need to complete a small puzzle or mini-game to get it. Occasionally, you?ll even have to look in a location nearby.
Don?t worry, though, this is an easy game and indicates the hot spots. This is not, however, a game for superior players who will find nothing to challenge them here.

Solid, Creative & Captivating
I found this game to be very quick & uncomplicated. Not much of a challenge, but quite fun. Yes, the graphics are cheesy, but some of us prefer a light intrigue to carry us through the night after a stressful day at work, without much complication..All the workacholics might agree.

Overall relaxing game, I enjoyed the game at first but it got repetetive in the end.
The game is combination of finding fragmented items, hidden object scenes and puzzles. I really enjoyed each of the puzzles, some of them were really original. It's a bit annoying that you have to go back to each HOS twice in short period of time.
The music was pleasant but there was no voice over. I didn't like the graphics but HOS were much more clear than in other games. The items were easy to spot.
As for the storyline, nothing new, mother tries to rescue her son from an evil witch...
The game was quite short but it was more of adventage, if it was longer I would probably stop playing. There wasn't any variety. You have to find few fragmented items in three scenes and when you find them, you move to the next three scenes, and then again and again. But thanks to the great puzzles it was quite fun.

VERY EASY, VERY SHORT, UNINSPIRED
Very easy and very short game. Good for novice HOG players. Nice ratio of list-based HOS and fill-in-the-circles, the latter including frags for some of the items that go into the circles. Puzzles are very easy. No voice-overs - just written dialogue which seems a little unnatural (really, who says "son, where are you?" when he goes missing. Don't you run shouting his name?) Dull characters. Uninspiring story occurs as expected - no twists or turns. Games have progressed a lot in the last few years and this one feels old.
